So it looks like the new guys have settled into the tank, they took everything I fed them this weekend. Since it's a holiday, they got to gorge themselves too. They took everything from pellets to frozen brine,and even went after algae chips. Witnessed males fighting, way too fast to capture. Also experimented with the photography a bit, I used a single flash and only the two red/orange leds. It didn't seem to bother them at all and the leds gave me enough light to see them.

Had to look that one up and their patterns are vary similar indeed. The pencilfish do have some gold in them but wasn't showing well in the photos.

For whatever reason algae chips seem to get the tank into a feeding frenzy. Perfect for taking some shots, next time I'll have to strategically place them.

Tank update swapped out my nano pumps for a mp10 and that's about it.

Thank you! I take a bit of patience but the end results are worth it.

Once again I have made some changes to the aquarium. This time it's a bit more drastic by adding a bag of Marfied Controsoil. I added some more seiryu stones and moved some plants around.

Thank you!

I was using my Tokina 100mm f2.8 macro and a single speed light combined with the aquarium lights.
